Turmeric Roasted Vegetables
I used to totally dislike Brussels sprouts …and then I was introduced to the wonderful world of roasting. Wow! What a game-changer. Roasting is a simple cooking method that really brings out the flavor of your favorite (and not-so-favorite-until-now) veggies. You can roast just about any vegetable– and for even more flavor– season with sea salt, pepper, and unsalted herbs and spices. My favorite seasonings for roasting are turmeric, cumin, cayenne pepper, thyme, and garlic.
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and is responsible for its anti-inflammatory properties in the body. Turmeric may offer protection against certain cancers, treat arthritis, benefit those with inflammatory bowel disease, reduce blood sugar, and help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Because curcumin may also prevent
oxidation of cholesterol, it offers hope for those with high cholesterol. Turmeric has a warm, earthy, sweet and peppery flavor and is a key ingredient in most Indian curries.
